Martinez Placed on Disabled List
On Wednesday Martinez was placed on the disabled list, officially listed with a right hand contusion. Jamar Hill was called up from St. Lucie.
"It's the same problem that I've had for a couple weeks," Martinez said Tuesday. "I think right now I won't play for three weeks. I don't know what it is exactly, I don't know what happened but I can't swing the bat right now."
In 60 games so far this season, Martinez hit .271 with four home runs and 21 RBI with a .336 on-base percentage.
The injury has been evident in his recent play. In his last 10 games, he hit .227 with one home run and four RBI with nine strikeouts.
As of now, Martinez will be scratched from the MLB Futures Game, part of the MLB All-Star Weekend, on July 8.
Inside Pitch will update his condition as details develop.
